Simple question Gizzy. Are you happy being 3rd in the bottom eight? If so your logic is very sound, and bless you for your priorities. Honestly.

Of course I want them to be higher, but it is not players not taking the field that is the problem. It is players not performing on the field. It is not an ongoing problem with Lisone. I presume SK would have been advised ages ago about the wedding so it will not be a shock to the Warriors.

He is missing one game, big deal.

Ok I will try to be serious.

We are talking team culture here. The toughest rugby competition on the planet. The Warriors are the bro culture, friendly club, sack a coach and keep him on, sign an aging legend beyond his use by date. That is great, but that is not a championship winning club.

According to those who have won a premiership it has been a very difficult year, so much so the thought of doing it again isn't easy.

That indicates to me that a premiership team sacrifices all together for the cause. Sorry brothers, but this is the Warriors where other things are more important.

So to all you guys who like being nice to people, please never grizzle again about being in the bottom 8.

I really shouldn't have to but since its someone who thinks it's because he is polynesian is the reason he is attending a family event I guess should. Let's start by asking a very simple question. How many weddings, or even family events have players attended in the last 5-6 seasons that have caused them to miss games. Let's get the facts out there so we can fully appreciate the scale of this epidemic that is cursing this club. I shall wait with breath held in anticipation of this horrifically large number.
It is the over riding principle that to win a comp takes sacrifice from everybody. This is not a retirement home social club.
 
I heard the week after its his sisters nephews cousin's 5th birthday patry and Shaun Johnson will be dressing up as Alsa the princess from Frozen.

Sorry boys.

Family first.
I don't know what's more concerning, that Shaun Johnson won't be playing.......... or that you know that you know the name of the princess in Frozen!

I don't mind that Sam goes to the wedding. If someone plays well enough on Saturday to take his bench sport in 1st grade going forward then I don't mind either, so be it. Bunty's turn to shine hopefully and Albert's still playing for contract after this year too right?

Personally I think suck it up. Try the military, where I've seen guys denied leave for grandparents funerals.
Blokes who have missed 3 Xmas's in a row, or leave a week after a new baby
True story this.

WWII British Army in France after Normandy, a real shit fight. RSM calls in a soldier. Private .......I have to tell your mother has sadly died. Do up your top button lad. Dismissed.

I head that from an old codger who was there.

Slight hole in your argument: By most people's comments on here, this is the first time this is happened at the Warriors (I'd actually be a bit surprised if the wedding v game clash had never happened before, given that the Warriors do tend to play on weekends and weddings do tend to happen on weekends, maybe a more bland reason for a player's unavailability was given and there was no-one with any inside info/who thought to get inside info). But, obviously, I can't prove I'm right so let's take that at face value.

Tomorrow will be the first time ever a Warriors player's missed a game for a non-funeral family event - in this case, a wedding. Is this the first time we've been out of the Top 8? Fuck, no.

And, and I'm not going to say "with all due respect" because that's a nice person's way of saying "I think you're a c...", it's not like Albert's position is one where we're really scrambling to find a player as good as Albert if not better than him - at present - to fill in.

Well, yeah, the Private Whatisface was fighting for his country/democracy etc etc. And there's people out there trying to kill him.

Albert Vete's running around a field for 60 odd minutes running with and without an oval shaped ball, trying to avoid being tackled by players wearing different coloured clothes while he is holding that oval shaped ball and tackling players who are wearing different coloured clothes and holding that oval shaped ball. Sport is bullshit, it's just that everyone pretends that it's important, which is professional sport's primary attraction. If Thurston/Smith/Cronk played league like they knew it didn't mean a shit, wouldn't save the world from frying, wouldn't create a cure for cancer, it'd be bloody ugly to watch. But when they pretend...

Look, we give players exemptions when its a life or death situation or a once in a life time thing.

Didnt Isaac Luke take time off because his wife went into premature labour?
That shit i can understand.

Wedding? and not your own but your sisters? how many sisters he got? These poly famili are usually pretty dam big. Wouldnt surprise me if he had one for every finger.

And what if this was her 3rd marriage or something? You know some people get married more times than I've seen hot dinners.

Up the standards boys if we wat any improvement to the shit hole we currently in.

No time off for weddings until you wankers start winning.

Win and you can attend as many weddings as you want for all i care.
 
This has polarized the forum at a level Manu would be proud of.

Whats' going to happen when the game is over and we've lost. Cause we always lose this one. Are people going to say, Oh Well I hope the boys have some fun in their spare time during the bye..

I personally think Sam had his third strike when he made the racial slur against Shaun Johnson. This is just what happens when there's no consequences for bad behavior.. Players start taking the piss.

It's tough at the top, except at the warriors, which is why they're never at the top...

#FunLovingLosers. How does that feel?

I hope not, players aren't supposed to have a life other than playing football.
I agree. Im pissed off at Shaun Johnson right now. He could have gone to visit Laos to connect with his mum's side of the family during the season instead of trying to get us valuable 2 points and doing those unimportant things during the offseason.

Just hope hes saving that card when his grandma is having her 64th birthday, because that should be fine right?

And while I'm still ranting. Its all SK's fault.

Gives false promises at the start of the season how the culture will change under him and proceeds to change ABSOLUTELY FUCK ALL.

Even Manu doesnt get a spell to see if he can handle it in the forwards. That pisses me off the most.
